Wednesday Horning,  August '10,
Public Squares.
It is generally tttijiposed tliat public squares are set apart for tlie advantage of the people. They are
places reserved for recreation and
amusement, and usually add considerably to the attractiveness of a
city. But the public squares of
New Westminster seem to be a
notable exception. They are not
■ornamental, thoy are not useful, and
they aro novor frequented by any
person in search of health or amusement. Of squares and crescents and
terraces and public gardens we have
enough for a city of ten times our
present population; but not one of
them has been cleared, leveled,
fenced, or made presentable. Lytton
Square alone may be excepted; but
it is a very small concern, and is
useful only for business purposes.
In a fow days Market Square will
come from the hands of the chain-
gang so transformed that no person
would be able to recognize it. But
this square, too, iH unsuitable for a
pleasure ground, und upon it is now
being erected a large agricultural
hall. What has beon accomplished
by the chain-gang on Market Square,
however, opens our eyes to possibilities which hnve not been known, to
exist. No person oxpected thut the
chain-gang would havo performed
such a large and excellent piece of
work in so brief a period of time. It
is the best job they have ever dono,
and it has been pushed forward with
an expedition as remarkable as it is
praiseworthy. Now, we have several times suggested that it wonld he
very much to the advantage of this
city if one of the many publio reserves were thoroughly cleared off,
leveled, feuced, and put into such a
shape as would make it not only a
great attraction to tho city, but an
inviting resort for publio recreations
and omusome-its. There is no sueh
place in New Westminster. Of
beautiful drives we have practically
none; of pleasure grounds wo have
none absolutely. Some very practical people of Stoic tendencies may
say that we are just as woll off without them, and that our streets and
roads should be opened up nnd completed before we apply publio money
upon unnecessary luxuries. We do
not coincide with that opinion. The
streets should be opened and improved by all means, and tho bulk
of the available rovenue should be
employed for that purpose. But if
tho public reserves are to remain in
their present unsightly condition until the streets have been opened and
completed, we are afraid thoy will
remain so for all time to oome. Wo
never know a eity whose, streets
wero completed. There aro claims
upon the publio funds othor than
those of commerce. Our streets may
all be paved and drained and faultless, and yot the appearance of the
oity may bo suoh as rcpell rather
than attract. Every new resident
adds to tho progress and commerce
and revenue of the city, and the
more woalthy they are, as a rule,
the moro will they spend among us.
But people possessed of abundant
means are in a position to choose
their place of residence, and tbey
are greatly influenced by the position and beauty of the location. Tlw
position of this city is undoubtedly
most fm.r.lilc, and in climate we
have grout advantages over Viotoria.
Let us spend somo money each year
in improving tho appearance of the
city. Let us take one of the publio
reserves nnd finish it, and enjoy it,
and invite visitors to boo it. Tho
cost would not bo largo, nnd we venture to assort that it would so add
to the attractions of the city that
people would become residents who
now turn up thoir noses at our city
of stumps. We believe the services
of tho chuin-gaug could be secured
to assist in tho undertaking if plotter application woro made, and the
thing might be almost accomplished
this season.   Lot it be tried at least.

THE WAY IT mil AFFECT YOU.
It excites expectoration and causes the
lungs to throw off the phlegm or mucous;
changes the secretions and purifies the
blood; lienls the irritated parts; gives
strength to tho digestive organs; brings
tho liver to its proper action, and imparts
trongtli to' the whole system.    Siren is
THE IMMEDIATE AND SATiWAOTORT EFFECT that it is warranted to break up the
most distressing cough in a few hours'
time, if not of too long standing. It is
warrunted to give entibk satisfaction,
even in tiik most confirmed cases of Consumption} It is warranted not to produce
costivenesa (whieh la the caso with most
remedies), or affect the head, as it contains no opium in any form. It is warranted to be perfectly harmless to tho most
delicate child, although it is an active
and powerful remedy for restoring tho
system. There, is no real necessity for so
many deaths by Consumption, when Allen's- Lung Balsam wilt prevent it if
only taken in time. Physicians having
consumptive patients, and who, having
failed to cure thom with thoir own medicines, we would recommend to give Allen's Lung Balsam a trial. Sold by all
Druggists. je30-lm,

Exit Dry-Dock!
On Frlilny Hon, Mr. Bmltheand lion,
Mr. Trutch nroceeiled to the dock site at
Esnitlmalt, where tlio representative of
the local government handed ovor to lhe
reprosonfullvo ot tlio Dominion government tlio ilrv-dock site, plant, otc. Hon.
Mr. Trutch ilton look possession of the
proportv. It is reported tliat work will
bo resumed almost Immertliitoly.-CWoiifol.
And no the dry-dock has gone out
of the possession of tliis province
forever. After swallowing up about
$300,000 of our revenue, for wliich
there are no returns to show, it has
been taken oft* onr hands by the
Dominion government uud will be
completed and maintained as a I'ed-
'eral work. British Columbia will
be recouped for what she bus spent
on it, and will receive from the dock
all the benefits which she could hnve
received if it had remained in her
possession. The construction of a
dry-dock by the provincial government was from the first a cruzy undertaking, and has for years been
taking thousands of dollars out of
our treasury which should Imve
been spent in making rotuln nnd do
veloping tho country. Tlio present
government went into otlice pledged
to use every possible endeavor to get
rid of the white elephant. That
pledge has been redeemed; and not
Only will the leak be stopped, but
there will come back to us the 8300,-
000 whioh wo greatly need for permanent improvements. The [MsopK-
of this province hnvo reason to congratulate themselves nud the govern
ment upon the announcement which
we have published. Tlio island
railway contract, wo believe, has
also been signed. It only remains
now for railway lands on tho mainland to be opened up for settlement,
and the three great questions constituting the terms of settlement will
be completed. Wc hnvo eveiy reason to believe thnt this will be done
before many months havo passed.
Hallway Connection.
it is of the utmost iin|iortancc
that this city should have railway
connection with the C. P. K, and it
iB time .our citizens were.beginning
seriously to consider how thia may
be accomplished. We may give onr
influence to the rival towns of Port
Hammond or Port Moody; wo may
apccnlnta iu .town lots at these em-'-
bryo cities; and wo muy calculate
which of them will do us the greatest good or harm, lint if this city
is ever to occupy the commercial
position for which she was intended,
she must be placed in direct connection with the railway systems of tho
continent. It would certainly uot
lie creditable to our enterprise nnd
business penetration if the great
Canadian transcontinental railway
comes within six miles of ns on the
north, nnd the Northern Pacific
comes within fourteen miles of us
on the south, and we remain without
any railway connection whatever.
We have already obtained charters
for railways to connect us with both
these lines. Sir Alexander Camp-
.Ml intimates that the southern
charter mny not be allowed. About
that we shall see. We presume no
obstacle will be placed by the federal government in the wny of connection between tins city and the
O. P. E., und we hope the gentlomen who hold the charter will ut
once tako the pro|ier steps to secure
the construction of the road without
delay. That line ought to be ready
for business as soon as tlio C. P. IS.
Is completed from Calgarry to Kimi
loops, It is quite possiblo the C.
P. K. syndicate might take the
charter and build tbo rond. Wo do
not care who builds it, so long nn it
ia built and operated by u responsible company. The Coi.umiiiax
has ulrcudy dctiiicd its position clearly on this question. Our first interests drnhllld, tlmt we shall he
connected by railway with tbe C.
P. II. Failing to secure that connection (nud there should lie no
failure) it is our interest tn in .ke
Port fiainiiiiiiid the ilis'ribiitiiig
station for ourselves ami the southern part of the province. The
building up of a city nt Port Moody
would ilo nothing for New Westminster. It would possibly do ns
nil injury. Til build up a city at
Coul Hai'lmi' would be even worse,
unless the V. P. II. line were di-
. veiled to ' the middle route, via
I'tiiimliy lake. In that ease it
would come so near us as to place
thia city practically on the rail uny.
We lions our citiions will reflect
upon the .1101111011 ami ucl with
energy and promptii.«.

Tho Manitoba Free Press, to disprove that "the bottom has fallen out

000 for the entire yoar of 1881, and
$4,000,000 for 1882. As the building

was that within tho noxt twenty-four

County Doubts.—A correspondent

whereas, under tho presont arrangement thoy cannot return until Saturday. Our correspondent sooms to-forgot that tho court sometimes Bits for

the govornment would gladly change

convenience of those interested.

Excursion to Poet Hammond.—
YeBterday afternoon the fine steamer
Yosemite left with an exoursion party
for the new city of Port Hammond.
An excursion from Victoria had been
advertised, but.iu conBequenco of some
misunderstanding, very few came from
that city. The Bteamer arrived at Hammond in about lyi hour, and the ex-
•cursioniatB disembarked at near tho
railway station, built some months ago.
The stoam Bhovel, doing the workof 300
men, attracted considerable attention,
while tliose intent on business,wander-
ed through the townaite. The ground
in many places is covered with hazel
brushes, loaded with nuts.tuid through
these bushes there are. trails in overy
direction, where persons may wander
at their sweet will. Tho townaite is
situated about 11 miles from this city,
on an almost level plain, and is said to
be about five foet above the highest
known water mark, Tho viow
is certainly beautiful and the situation
well chosen. Excellent water may be
had by digging about 15 feet, and for
water works the Lilloet river, about 3
miles distant, would afford very excellent facilities. Tho ground has a fall
of about 5 feet per mile towards the
Pitt River, affording good drainage.
Aftor thoroughly exploring the region,
the excursionists returned to this oity,
greatly delighted with both Port Hammond and the steamer Yosemite.
nothing of tho reported great strike of
f;old on the Yukon river by theScheff-

Indians, however, that the Schehiin
and othor prospectors had abandoned

their trip on tho Yukon had boon unproductive.
Yea or Nay?—Voting on the oity
loan by-law takes place next Saturday.
Tho object -of thia loan is bo well understood that wo need not refer to it
at length, Thero are some persons,
however, who declare that the by law
should not carry because of the amount
specified for Columbia st. They are
in favor of the ferry and the agricultural hall, but are opposed to Columbia st. improvement. However much
people may differ concerning this
item, we hope no such - difference of
opinion will bo allowed to defeat tho
whole scheme. The oity iB already
pledged to the ferry and; agricultural
buildings. If the by-law is defeated,
what will become of these enterprises}
But we can scarcely believe that any
person is really opposed to improving
Columbia st. Iu wet weather it is a
perfect mud puddle—and it is our
Rrincipal street. We hope thoso who
ave votes will go to the pjlls on Saturday and voto yea for the by-law.
Muno *:k !—About two or three weeks
ago a man by the name of Henry.
Hesse leased the shooting gallery on
Columbia st. Sinco Firday last the
gallery has been closed, and nothing
of Hesso had been seen, A etonch
coming from the place yostorday led
to suspicions. The door was broken
open, and Hosso was found lying on
tho floor dead, his throat out and a
bloody axe lying near tho body. Thore
is no doubt but ho waa murdered. He
ia believed to have had about $250 on
hia person, and is said to havo been
gambling with a man from whom ho
won a good deal. An inquest waa held
on tho body yesterday afternoon by
Coroner Trew. It was stated in ovidonco that Hesso had last been Been
with a German sailor named Chas.
Anderson, about I o'clock Saturday

with Hosso for some days. The jury
returned a vordiot of wilful murder
against Anderson, who has fled no ono

Wagon Making. — A few months
ago Mr. Hoar opened a harness shop
in this oity, and wo are gratified to
learn that ho ia doing an excellent
business. To-day wo have pleasure in
announcing thu establishment of another industry which has been greatly
needed. Messrs. J. R, Johnston ana
J. M. Smith have begun tho manufacture of carriages, buggies, wagons,
and agricultural implements, and wo
are sure the enterprise, if properly conducted, will bo a success. There are a
large number of wagons imported every
year from eastern Canada and tho
United States. The freight and duty
on these vehicles are very heavy, ana
we see uo reason why. thoy cannot be
made much more cheaply and equally
as woll hore, Messrs. Johnston A
Smith hnvo had many years' experience at this business In Ontario. Thoy
were connected with a factory hoar
Hamilton for 8 years. They arrivod
hero a few months ago to see tho country. They wero greatly pleased with
it and saw at once that thero was a
good opening for thoir business. They
have already a numbor of orders on
hand, and wo hone they will receive
tho patronage which their enterprise
desorvos.

Hanlan Beat at Last.
TEENER WINS THE RACE AT FALL RIVER.
Fall River (Mass.), Aug. 20\—The
professional sculling race postponed
from Saturday was uot started until
nearly six o'clock, owing to rough water and a stiff breeze. Tho men were
called back from a false start. Borne
returned, but others, including Hanlan, HoBinet- and Toomer, rowed over
tho course. Another race was ordored.
Haitian took tho load aud turned the
buoy first, followed closely by Ross
and Hosmer, with the'others not far
off. An exoursion steamer from Providence mn among the boats and tho
swell from the paddles swamped Hanlan, Elliott und Hosmer, Darkness
coming on rapidly, it was almost impossible to distinguish tho rowers at
the finish. Lee upset after crossing
the line and Driscoll drow out half a
mile from the start.
At the close half a dozen oarsmen
surrounded the judges' boat, several
of them claiming the first position.
This was given to Toemer, who made
the two and a half miles in 18.26; Hosmer second, 18.30; Ross third, 18.35.
Hanlan said he was beaten, but didn't
feel badly about it. Ho was glad of
one thing and that wob that no money
had been bet on him. The othor oarsmen claim that Hanlan was really out-
rowed.
At tho conclusion of the race thero
was a controversy between Ross aiid
Toemer as to who was winner on account of tlio oblique position of tho
finish. Ross claimed Toemer did not
cross the line, but his objection was
not sustained. Hanlan feels badly
over tho result of the contest, and during an interview said his defeat was
owing to his position at the start. "I
was not hit with a sandbag, nor was I
poisoned; I used no saw," said be,
"but I was beaten on my merits;" He
states that prior to his arrival heco he
was not in a proper condition to row,
but felt called upon to be equal to uny
engagement he had made during the
season and ho believed before the season closed ho would be defeated.
John Teenier, winner of the race, is
not yot 20 years old, and has rowed in
nine professional races this summer.

Pokt Wranobl, Aug. 10.—Times

fishermen. Duriug the early part of
tho season fear was groat with thoso
engaged in tho fish business it would
prove a failure. Rut though the fish
oome late they camo in great quantities, bo at present they havo moro than
can possibly be used. News from
Oassiar are, dull times witli but littlo

are very quiet after their little difficulty with tho Indians. Numbers of
the Indians who loft at that time are

Pyramid harbor tho canneries uro doing woll, though the fish came lato,
yet now thoy have more than tlwv cau

cannery have ouch put up thus far
about 8000 eases with a prospect uf
swelling this number to at least 8000

Thu waters seem literally alivo with

London, August 20th.—In tho comment to-night Gladstone, replying to
tho question of Northcoto, relative to
the nose of Shaw, imprisoned by tho
French in Madagascar, stated that Shaw
had beeu accused of having relations
with tho Hovas and of direct acts of
hostility to tho French, Gladstone said
Shaw was confined on hoard of a French
man-of-war, and would be tried by a
court-martial, baring full facilities for
defense and tho right of appeal. North-
cote was not content with uio statement,
and announced that ho would repeat tlie
question. Gladstone declared that he
would he unable to say anything further
relative to the ease, aa publio intercuts
might thereby be injured. He said
there would be very grave cause for
complaint if Shaw was not accorded a
fair trial.
Berlin, August 22.—Itiumarek's organ, the North German Gazette, replying
to tlie attacks of the French journals on
Germany) and their cry for revenge, declares tliat France alono threatens the
peace of Europe. It says sueh a state
of affairs cannot continue without serious danger, aud that passions, fermented
by agitation, may reach tho bounds of
peace. The Times, commenting on the
gazette's article referring to the attacks
of the French journals on Germany and
declaring that tno French alone threaten
the ponco of Europe, says tho courso
taken by the latter paper cannot he explained hy the reason assigned, as the
French press generally has been very
moderate in regard to Germany. Tho
article of the Qazette has startled Paris,
alarmed Europe, and caused prices on
the bourses of Paris, Vienna and Berlin
to fall, Papera everywhere express surprise at tho Gazettes attack on France,
and wonder what ita object is. A French
paper says the charges contained in the
article intimate that France had bettor
now say that Bismarck is socking a pretext for war and the importation of an
army.

says: "The weakness and divided counsels of the opposition during tho session extricated tho ministers from
thou* worst straits. The minister may

Paris, Aug. 20.—The French have
bombarded and captured tho fort and
batteries at the mouth of Hue river,
aftor a brilliant land attack; 700 natives wero killed 1000 wounded during
the engagement. The French had
only a fow men wounded. It is generally thought that Chambord's death

GENERAL MANAGER VAN HORNE'S ACCOUNT OF
PROGRESS OF WORK.
(Montreal Slur, AUg, 0.)
"We aro now," said Mr. Van Home,
the General Manager, to a. representative of the Star to-day, "at tliis season
of the year at the very height of our
expenditure, and it is safe to say that
we are spending $100,000 .a day. We
havu about eighteen thousand employed in construction alono, and with
our somco hands I suppose tho total
numbor of employees will nearly
amount to twenty-five thousand in all,
and we aro giving employment to all
laborers who are presenting themselves
and who are fit to work. To-night or
to-morrow morning we will bo at the
foot of tho Rockies, and our track will
be laid to Calgary, I have just received a report from Major Rogers
that the puss through the Selkirk
mountains exceeds his most sanguine
expectations, that it has turned out to
be one of tho finest mountain passes
ever seen, aiid in fact that the difficulties to bo overcome uro not nearly bo
formidable as anticipated. Our line
is now located through from Montreal
to Kamloops, and wiih anything like
good luck wo will bo through to that
point, where wo join tho government
work, in about two years."
"How much will it coat per mile
through tho Rockies?"
"We don't know."
' 'Have you not estimated tho amount
beforehand?"
"Tho Canadian Pacific railway," replied Mr. Van Home, bracing himsolf
up and speaking as if ho wanted the
reporter to understand that ho meant
every word he said, "has nevor estimated tho coat of any work; it hasn't
time for that; it's got a big job on
hand, and it's going to put it through."
"Well, but if yttu haven't estimated
the coBt of tho construction through
tho mountains how do you know that
you have sufficient funds to push tho
road as you are currently reported to
have?"
"Well, if wo haven't got enough
we'll get moro, that's all about it."
"And how about your oratorn connections; what about tho Nortii
Shore?"
'That and all other matters in tho
East are for future consideration. I
think we will do woll if wo got through
from Montreal to the Paoifio in two
years."
"Aud how about your bridgo and
Eastern connection to tho Atlantic?"
-Now, come, it doos not do to give
too much publicity to all our schemes,
aud might do ub harm."
"Rumor says you will get to the
Atlantie by the South-Western, and
thut as a matter of foot you now control that road?"
"Not to my knowledge."
"Then you will want thu North
Shore?"
Tho question failed to elicit a reply,
aud thu reporter, Booing that ho had
probably obtained as much information
as possiblo from tho General Manager,
retired, forcibly impressed with the
resolute frankness of character displayed by tho man who is the administrative head of this great Canadian
enterprise.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(ContlDued.)
"And right glad I was that I had
not set my heart on the bright-facod
young master, for ere another yoar
was out the villago bolls were pealing
lustily, and young Lady Alice came to.
roigu at the old hall.
About a year after that a great event
happened at Pear-tree Farm. Dolly
was* engaged to bo roamed, and late
enough too, for sho was lo%- past
thirty, and was getting pinched and
thin and more soure.d tban ever.
"Dolly's suitor was an attorney in
the neighboring county town, a little
■hock-headed man with gray twinkling
eyes that never seemed still. It must
have been the broad acres of the farm
that proved the bait, and not Dolly's
angular tigura and sharp face; though
what she could have seen in Josiali
Beazley, with his leering smilo and
shambling gait, I could never tell.
'Neither father nor mothor could boar
him; but they dared not oppoBO Dolly,
as she seemed set on it.
"Somehow, mothor looked worn
and delicate iu those days, the continued harass of my step-sister's ways
teemed to weary her beyond hor mena-
ure.
"One early afternoon I was sitting
sprigging muslin in the porch, and
mother near me on the door-step shelling peas, whon Dolly camo creaking
down-stairs in hor snuff-brown ailk
and now lavender shawl.
'"I am going ioD , mother, to
get lomo things, ami I want Lucy to
come too and help mo carry them; I
can't manage alone.'
"I looked at my mother iu dismny:
it was" a snorohing day, and the road to
D was full three miles and a half
long; and a daity walk in the sun, and
Dolly's company was anything but do
Birable.
"'Had not Timothy better drive
you in father's gig, Dolly?'
" 'No, thank you, ma'am, I would
rather walk than be beholden to Timothy for anything; so get on your hat,
Lucy.'
" 'It is dreadfully hot,11 pleaded.
" 'So it is child,'replied my mother.
•She had bettor not fjo with you, fur
■he is not strong enough to boar that
broiling sun, and all that way, too;
you know she is but delicate.',
" 'Delicate, indeod! I should think
she was, mother, with aU your mollycoddling; why, tho girl has nothing to
do nll day but nurse hor fine fancies and save herhamU. Dohcate
indeed! you ought to be ashamed of
yourself, nnd fnther too, to spoil her
so; sho will be fit for nothing soon.
Why Bhould the walk bo worse for her
than for ino that have beon toiling
sinco dawn? Oue would think her a
wax doll to melt in the sun;' nnd so
on and so on, till by nugging and
worrying Dorothy us usual got hor
way, and with a heavy heart I tied on
iny gipsy hat and kissed my mother.
"As I opened tho little wicket-gate
a strange feeling came over mo, a reluctance to pass through that gate and
follow Dolly into the lnno; and so
strong was this fancy of mine thut I
almost think that in another moment
I should have defied her anger and
returned to tho porch, had not her
harsh voice, bidding mo not stand
dawdling' there but cume on, mado mo
hasten after her.
" 'A foolish fancy,11 said to mysulf:
hut oh, ma'am, if I had staid at
home that bright sunshiny afternoon
"The walk to D  was toilsome
and hot; and the endless purchases
when wo got there moro wearying still.
Dolly prided herself ou being a good
market-woman, nnd as sho seemed to
think half an hour's haggling nothing
in making a bargain, the business
Beetnod interminable; and when at
length it was over, instead of returning homewards, she stopped at a dull
little house in the high street, and
knocked at the door, I resigned myself
to fresh misery. No need to ask her
purpose, for Josiali Beazley's liumo
wob on the brass plate.
"A slatternly maid with curl-papers
opened the door, and Josiali, jumping
off a high stool in the front room,
whioh appeared to be his office, for it
was littered with red-taped documents
and heavy-looking boxes, led the way
to a dark little back parlor with a drab
paper, and looking out mi the blank
wall of u brewery.
"Jusiiih seemed dulightod to welcome his bride-elect, and then turned
to me with many flourishing compliments, at which Dolly frowned visibly.
Seeing this, the little attorney with
many tender words pressed her tn take
tea and roturii to thu farm in the coul
of tho evening, which, to my great
relief, she declined, though I was certain she had fully intended to do so,
, and had called for the purpose; fori
had caught Bight of her best lappets
pinned under her shawl.
"In vain the little nun pressed and
implored, Dolly was inexorable, being
evidently in a bad humor, for some inconceivable cause. So tho attorney
was foroed at lost to desist, though, to
test his politeness, ho put on his hat
and accompanied us to tho outskirts
of tho town, where with many nrotes-
tattons he parted at length with his
'    beloved.
"On leaving llio Iwuao I hnd gatli
orud up the heavy parceU wifli which
we Imd both been laden, nntl followed
them out; but Dolly, in «pite of my
hints, showed no iiitentimi of relieving me, but walked ou grimly with
satchel and parsnl, and took uo notice
whatever. My arms acln-ii dreadfully,
nnd so did my head, and even when
we had left tha dnsfy rond nnd turned
into the green shitdmvy fields, I felt
little relief.
"'Dorothy,' 1 said, imploringly,
'Dorothy;' but she marched nn ahead,
taking no hoed.
"We had entered a little blind
copse} nt the end was a stile, and a
row of pollard treea guarding a cool
deop pool. As we came nenr, (rom
the margin of the water where ho luy,
there sprang up a young soldier in undress uniform, who, touching his cup,
military wise, assisted Dorothy over
the stile.
"From his clanking spins nnd-henvy
cavalry mustache I saw he belonged
to the reuitnont quartered at D*=—,
As he relieved mo of my pnrcels, laying thom carefully on the grass one by
one, and then turning gave mo his
hand, I saw his dark eyes rest on my
features with respectful admiration
and pity.
•"You nre sadly laden and look
weary; dare I inquire if you have far
to go'/'
" 'Another mile to Pear-tree Far
and I sighed.
" 'Another mile! pardon me, hut
you du not seem fit for it. rnnylhulp
carry these?' he spoke hesitatingly,
nud with u flush on iiin hnnd*"uiu
face. ■
"'Come mi, Lucy, and don t alalia
talking there,' cried Dolly, i-uerulutts-
ly; 'I never mw any ono io slow tu
you are,'
The young soldier looked at her
aud then nt me, and seemed about lo
spenk, then chnngtiig his mind and
giving mo a pitying glance, placed in
my hands tho lightest pucka-'-.-, nud
shouldering the rest prepared to follow us.
' 'Now, young man,' said Dorothy
Bharply, 'wo don't want any of yonr
interference, though you do seem
mighty polite, to bo sure. I'll thank
you to give my sistop those parcels,
and mind your own business.'
" 'Madam,' he replied, reddening to
tho temples, while I stood sick and
wliite beside the stilo1 'I will gladly
givo them into your hands, but not
into this young lady's; if you havo
any feelings see how unable sho is
evon to accomplish that distance unladen.'
"'Well, I'm sure,' commenced
Dorothy, in the shrill high key I
dreaded, 'well, I'm sure, sir!'
" 'Oh. Dolly, Dolly,' I criiid, 'don't
you soo I'm ill? givo mo some water,
please;' and us I spoko the sun now
setting seemed eddying in a crimson
mass, whilo the green Holds heaved
and rose and swam in tho billowy
circlos round me; and whon nll was
calm again, I found I was lying ou tlio
cool grass by thu pool with tlio young
stranger bosido mo bathing my loin-
pies, wlulo Dorothy, wty really
frightened, was kneeling beside mu
chafing my hands. Hur first words,
however, woro hardly moro gracious
than usual—■
" 'Now, Lucy, don't lio a fool; mako
nn ott'ort and shako them off.1 Alas!
it was not to bo shaken, off; evon tho
attempt lo rise renewod the sickening
dizziness, uud I waa forced to cling to
the young soldier fnrsuppint.
"Dorothy took hold of my arm
roughly. 'Now, young man, as yoli
seem to have u mind to bu useful, just
pick up things, and I will help Lucy.'
" 'On tho contrary, iiia'um, I was
about to troublo you to scu after thom
yourself, for this poor child 1 will take
bare of;' und without waiting fur an
answer ho took mo off tho fitilo, where
I had sunk from Dorothy's iron grasp,
and lifting mo lightly iu his arms carried mo off. I mado nn opposition,
for I felt too weak; und all that long
mile ho bore me, patiently und tender
ly-only pausing onco to rest by tbo
way.
" 'Am I very heavy?' I asked
faintly.
"'I Bhould like to curry you to-tho
world's end,' wus the ailswor, and ho
spoke no move till he placed mo down
in iny father's porch, when, waiting
for uo thanks, ho lifted his cap nud
went away.
"I was weak-liko for many days
after thut walk, and us I lay o*i tlm
couch in the bluo parlor those words
camo rim-nig in my ours, which he
snid while bearing Iho so swiftly
through tho green fields: '1 should
like to carry yuu to tho world's end,'
and evory night that I lay down in
my littlo tent bud I dreamt foolish
girl dreams of my young soldier.
"Thu first time I wont out was to tho
villago church on Sunday afternoon,
and there in tho free scat facing our
largo futility puw he sit, looking hand*
sotuor than ovor ill his full-dress cavalry uniform. Dolly saw him, for shu
gave a toss of her head nnd a jit tio
snort; but after two nr three shy
glances I did unt turn my head ng.un
that way, for ovory time I did so,
those frank dark oyes wero looking
full in litiiio. After that afternoon ho
sat rutfulnrly in that seat, and I never
tuna un evening raniblq without seeing him strolling through tht' lanes,
or leaning on some stilo near Pear-tree
Farm; but ns a touch of tho cap and
u pleasant good-evening was ull ho
vouchsafed, my sense of propriety was
not alnrmod, fur I knew that for n
farmer's daughter to hold converse
with a common soldier would bu accounted u heinous crime.
"A common soldier, I could scarcely
beliovo it; for his chivalrous manners
and low, well-ultuuod speech seemed
to belong tu higher wink. Enoch
Bnrsloy und Harry Murdcn wero not
to compare with him ill point of breeding, and ho was better looking than
oven Frank Thomicroft himself. In
spite of this I would not own to myself that I was even interested in thu
stranger; uud though tho quick boating of my heart uud the Hush on my
check when I met him, should have
warned me of dnilgor, I aaid, Peace,
peace, till there was none left for mo.
"One evening a sudden stnriu drove
ino into Dame Martin's collage, and I
had just seated myself and was drying my gray cloak lit the cheery IjhiiM,
when hu entered, and removing his
cap uourtouusly to tho duuio, begged
for half an hour's refuge. This liuing
oheeifully accorded, ho camu tn llio
firo, and thou and hot till then did hu
aee mo; and when he did so ho merely
gave guod-ovuning, nnd taking tho
cloak from iny hand, knelt down nnd
held it carefully to dry. Thu storm,
which had showed signs of lulling,
now broke out afresh, tho lightning
played vividly through the lattice and
about tho brown rafters, while the
thunder pealed in awful crushes nvur
our head.
" 'Are you frightened, Miss Lucy?'
ho said, turning to mo with a bright
em ilo.
" 'Very, for surely it is a fearful
storm.'
" 'Nothing to those I hnve witnessed
in tho tropics;' and thuii drawing his
chair closer, whilo llio firelight played
over his bronzed face uud wavy hair,
ho told us of awful huvi'icanus unci
tornadoes; and thon growing animated,
wuut un to speak of toretgii lauds nnd
hard*fought campaigns, till wo bueniue
an rupt nnd interested Hint Ite was tlio
first tri call my aUentimi to thu fact
that the rain had stopped, I I'-'fii)
hastily, for it was late and dark.
" 'Too lute for you to go safely
alone,' ho snid, answering my thoughts.;
(I fear ymi must bear with my eon
pauy.'
"Thoro wns no help for it, so I
acquiesced, and wu went on chatting
pleasantly, , He told mu hia name was
Allan Graham, and thut hu was but a
private in the regiment whore he
served.
"'Ho smiled. 'I have hnd a good
education, Misa Lucy. I am tht1
of n well-to-do sehnul-muster, holding
a good position in a large Inwu. Ho
taught mo with his other pupUs- with
the hope nf fitting nm to become his
assistant; hut teaching wus not my
Vocation and suldiurinir was; nnd as
ho could not or would not buy mo i;
commission, I run away nnd enlisted.
A foolish thing,1 said Allan, 'ami one
which I hnvo bitterly regrettodj for
my fnther died before he had forgiven
mo my disobedience, nud left all his
money to a distant cousin.'
"'What a pity; oh, what u pity!
but it wns vory wrong to run nwny.'
" 'Very, I know, but my uxpiutiuti
is mon* bitter than my fault, and is
lifelong; and now good-bye, Mian Lucy,
for hero is the fnrm; nnd now, us ynu
hit we nre of fji-iml nitik, may I oH'er
